Right now the EPA is accepting public comments on proposed new ozone standards that will make the air we breathe cleaner and our communities healthier, but they are facing fierce opposition from the coal industry and its allies. The Houston EPA hearing on new ozone standards is one of only three across the country (the other two are in Virginia and California), so this is a big deal!
Can you join us for an important EPA public hearing on hazardous ozone standards in Houston on February 2nd?
The final decision by the EPA will have an impact on our air quality for decades, but they need to hear from you.
Who: The EPA and you, your friends, family and neighbors. There will be carpools from around the state.
What: EPA public hearing on proposed revision of the ozone standard which would improve the air quality in Texas
Where: Hilton Houston Hobby Airport, Moody Ballroom, 8181 Airport Boulevard, Houston, TX 77061 (map)
When: Tuesday, February 2, from 9:30am – 7:30pm (or later if there are still people waiting to testify!)
– 10:45am: Morning press conference/rally
– 6:30pm: Evening rally with speakers
Texans deserve standards that follow the law and abide by the Clean Air Act. There are twelve new coal plants proposed in Texas, and we already have 17 coal plants up and running (some of the dirtiest in the country). We deserve better.
Thanks for all that you do!
By promoting cleaner energy, cleaner government, and cleaner air for all Texans, we hope to provide for a healthy place to live and prosper. We are Public Citizen Texas.
